Study Details

Testing a Person's Mobility

(IRB#: IRB_00171076)

This study wants to learn more about how people who either have no neurological (brain) injuries or who have had a stroke move around on different surfaces. These include stairs and uneven ground. The study wants to improve how a person moves with challenges such as a stroke survivor. People in the study will walk on different surfaces such as slopes, stairs, and uneven ground. While walking, information will be recorded from several sensors placed across the body (on the legs, in shoes, on wrist or around the chest). These sensors help collect how participants' muscles work, how they move, and how their heart rate changes as they walk on different surfaces. Being in the study requires attending at least one in-person session that will last up to 3.5 hours. People are paid for participation.
